Marvel Studios’ 2018 superhero blockbuster is the first major film event held at BBC Studioworks’ recently reopened Television Centre studios.
“With our state of the art technical infrastructure in Studio TC1, a vast array of flexible ancillary spaces and our professional talent and audience handling arrangements, Television Centre lends itself perfectly to this kind of unique, large-scale, Hollywood-style event” – Meryl McLaren, Commercial Manager, BBC Studioworks.
BBC Studioworks facilitated a large scale red carpet fan event yesterday (Sunday April 8th) with Walt Disney Studios, for the widely anticipated Marvel superhero movie, Avengers: Infinity War.
The event consisted of a private red carpet media line and a filmed fan show with members of the movie’s A-List cast, plus a sneak peak of some footage.
Walt Disney Studios made full use of BBC Studioworks’ Studio TC1 at Television Centre for the event. The 10,800 sq ft studio was turned into a high-spec cinema with a 15m wide screen, surround sound and seating for 600+ fans and special guests. BBC Studioworks’ cameras, galleries and tapeless record suite were used to produce multi-camera coverage of the event.
Outside of the studio, the red carpet was laid from Wood Lane leading into and around Television Centre’s iconic Helios forecourt, where the press were gathered. BBC Studioworks’ Scenic and Electrical teams worked on both the external and internal studio areas of the event.
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. Avengers: Infinity War will be in cinemas from 26th April 2018.
